    In June JMS said:
    "Also, expect word fairly soon-ish about a new series of B5 novels."

    Maybe they are about Crusade or subplots tied to it. As i understand, B5 licence is owned by S&S? (b5 quote book publisher)

    My limited knowledge what happens after the end of the show is: the cure is found rather quickly, Gideon dies and some bigger problem arises.


    I don't even know if that's correct, but I would like some insights and even better .. facts.
    1. We don't know that Gideon dies when he's shot at ("End of the Line"), or even if he's wounded, or even if it's really Gideon in front of the bullet. That's all left up in the air. It's a classic cliffhanger ending.

    2. The bigger problem is the legacy of the shadowtech and its roots in Earthforce Black Projects, and the Technomage connection.

    Q&A session

    Room 120 - Fans begin gathering and taking their places in traditional school desks. Some of us haven't seen the like for...a long time. Before us is a perfectly clean blackboard. While we wait for JMS, somebody (okay, I did it) writes in large letters " MR. STRACZYNSKI" and below it, "T M o S 101"

    3:00 PM. JMS arrives and, without a word, goes to the board and erases the "TMOS 101" part amid much laughter.

    ....

    Audience: Any (plans?) to address the Crusade story?

    JMS: Uh....(gestures toward the erased blackboard) Other questions.

    ....

    Audience: Out of all your cancelled projects, which one would you like to resume first?

    JMS: There's only been a couple. (laughter) He's being mean to me! Umm...Crusade. That's the obvious choice because that one was cut short...it was shot in it's cradle by unfair means and that pisses me off. So I will fix that one way or the other. Yes...

    I was hoping they'd do a SW:NJO style twenty book arc from a few different authors (with outlines from JMS, of course) that chronicled the Crusade storyline. In some ways, it may have been better than an actual TV show, more fleshed out.

    JMS hinted that some of the Crusade story might be told in the upcoming movie Babylon 5: The Memory of Shadows. As far as a resurrection of Crusade itself, it's likely much too late to regather the actors etc.

    Future of Crusade

    This must've been asked, but has JMS hinted if there's ANYTHING to come with Crusade ? Since he is very protective of the scripts not yet filmed and aired it would imply that there was more to come. My limited knowledge what happens after the end of the show is: the cure is found rather quickly, Gideon dies and some bigger problem arises.
